ANN ARBOR – The Main Street Area Association announced it is canceling its annual downtown trick-or-treat event due to safety concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Each year for the beloved tradition, participating business owners place balloons outside their doors and greet trick-or-treaters and their families.
